Living with an alcoholic

Posted , 7 users are following.

My husband is an alcoholic. He admitted it to a health care professional while hospitalized for internal bleeding. Where he was close to dying. After going through detox in the hospital, he came out sober and that lasted a month. He has now refused to get help of any kind.He is in complete denial. He can maybe go 1 day without drinking.  He won't accept that he has cirrhosis and absolutely should not be drinking.   Due to being hospitalized he couldn't work. He won't find work now. When he is sober he's a different person. When he drinks beer mostly now, he is vile, hateful and nasty.

How do you get someone to seek help? He has hit what would be rock bottom for alot of people but hasn't made a change for him.
